  • Help Wanted!

    Did you learn something, have a laugh, or make a connection from a program you attended this year? Did you notice how the sound and picture quality of movies and music programs you attended has improved? Did you go to a General Meeting or luncheon and enjoy some delicious treats and an entertaining speaker/entertainer? Did you go on a Tour? What about a POD -- did you join the walkers, bikers, painters, or get help from the Dover High kids with your technology needs? If you had a question, was someone responsive to your request?

    If you answered "yes" to just one or to all of these questions, you have an ARA VOLUNTEER to thank. Volunteers are the engine that keeps the ARA running and growing. Would you want to remain a member of this organization if all of these opportunities were NOT available to you?
